Big Roche-a-Cri Lake District Harvesting Program
Marlin Powers, who has worked with the BRAC Lake District for about ten years. He said their Lake District was formed in 1988 and at the very first meeting, the first motion that was made was to buy a weed harvester. Today they have a total of four; two five-foot harvesters, one seven-foot harvester, and one ten-foot harvester. All four harvesters run Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and every otherSaturday morning to pick up weeds off piers that homeowners have raked up. They have a staff of two full-time workers and about eight part-time workers that drive the harvesters.

Most of them are retired, which works great for them and for the District. They’ve found that retired guys seem to fit the operation for a couple of reasons. They can’t guarantee the hours they’re going to work, because there’s no control over the weather. New hires ride along with another operator at first to learn how the machine runs. He then had a couple of days training and someone rode with him. The rest was just on-the-job training.

Chelan County PUD Combats Eurasian Milfoil - Every summer, two Chelan County PUD park maintenance workers use an Aquarius Systems weed harvester to cut and remove tons of Eurasian milfoil from parks and boat launches along the Columbia River. Without the PUD’s harvesting program, boat launches and swimming areas would be choked with weeds. This HM-420 harvester was built more than 15 years ago. It still looks great.
